I'm interested to see what Kearney
decides to do with Manu this week, Kens no great winger but he's probably done enough this season to hold his place for now. I'd be reluctant to change the preseason center pairing of Kata/Fusitua
, we've seen the effect on combinations that's had already this season.
Gubb, Lolohea and Lisone
to return to the Cup side which is probably hard on Lisone
, he's had some good moments bringing some aggression from the bench but he lacks size and game sense, he to often undoes his good work with poor judgement.
deserves to go ahead of Lolohea on the fact he's prepared to put his body on the line alone. He's equally talented imo, last season he was the Warriors ISP player of the year and named fullback of the year in the ISP team of the year. In 2014 he received Melbourne’s NYC back of the year award and the Greg Brentnall Young Achievers’ Award, he's come up through the Aussie system and now deserves a shot at establishing himself in first grade.
I need to see more of Ligi Sao, I'm not entirely sold on him yet but he's a bigger body and his form in the Cup side warrants his selection.
